The story in Luke 2:1-20 recounts the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. Mary and Joseph were required to travel to Bethlehem for a census, and while they were there, Jesus was born and laid in a manger. Angels appeared to shepherds in the fields, telling them of the birth of the Savior, and the shepherds went to Bethlehem to see the baby.
